Bangladeshi all-rounder and skipper of Sylhet Sixers (in the Bangladesh Premier League), Nasir Hossain, has been warned by the BCB after he failed to arrive in time for the toss prior to a match against Dhaka Dynamites. The 25-year-old was charged with a breach of level 1 of the BCB Code of Conduct. Along with him, manager Hasibul Hossain has also been charged for not being able to hand the team sheet on time.
In a statement released, the BCB wrote, “”Nasir and Hasibul were charged by on-field umpires Masudur Rahman Mukul and Riaz Uddin, third umpire Tanvir Ahmed and fourth umpire Aktaruzzaman for delaying the toss by six (06) minutes and for the failure to submit the team sheet properly.”
“In addition to the sanction imposed for the breach of Article 2.1.1, one (1) demerit point has been added to their disciplinary record. Pursuant to Article 7.5 of the Code, if an offending person reaches four (04) or more demerit points in the tournament, the points will then be converted into suspension points. Four (04) demerit points equate to a ban of one (01) match,” the release further stated.
Meanwhile, after registering one win in the tournament so far, the Sylhet Sixers are second in the table. With the likes of Babar Azam, Liam Plunkett and Upul Tharanga the Sixers have a formidable look to the side.
